This week in Room 9!  Is it okay to own an exotic animal as a pet?  You may have been asked this question recently.  That’s because we are working on writing opinion essays in class.  Which brings us to the next question: Is a chinchilla an exotic animal?  hmmmm….. History has brought us to a place where First Nations are trading furs for goods from the Hudson Bay Company and people in Europe are wearing the highest fashion beaver hats.  You may find your student on a webquest researching this time and watching videos about what it was like to be a Voyageur traveling in a birch bark canoe. In science we are looking closer at weathering, erosion and deposition, the processes that help the rock cycle to go round and round.  Are there examples in your backyard?

Calling Volunteers to take 6th years to the library  Room 9 6th years have started their big project and are looking for resources.  They are asking two adults to drive them (10 in all) to the library to help them check out books.  If you are available, please let me know the days and times and we will get organized. We may be able to do one trip, but splitting into two groups would also be work.


Pasta Dinner - Ridgeline’s annual Pasta Dinner is coming up on Friday, February 22nd, 5-7 p.m. Enjoy a home cooked pasta dinner with red sauce or pesto, bread with garlic butter, and green salad. Visit with other Ridgeline families and bring your Direct Donation Drive (DDD) donation.
